UFO Believe

Sunday Thoughts: More People Believe In UFOs than God?

A majority of Americans believe in aliens and UFOs, and they really do think they come in peace. According to a Pew Research study (see excerpt below), about 65% of people said they think there is intelligent alien life on other planets – and the belief is rising. An even stronger majority of about 87% said they don’t believe UFOs are a security threat at all or only represent a minor one.

Belief in UFOs

Perhaps not surprisingly, those who think there is intelligent life outside Earth are more inclined than others to see military reports of UFOs as evidence. From the survey alone, it is impossible to determine whether recent government information makes people more likely to believe the UFO reports are evidence of extraterrestrial life.

But is the government lying about UFOs?

After 75 years of taboo and ridicule, serious people can finally discuss the mysterious flying objects, and even skeptics say that’s a good thing. In a deeply polarized country where conspiracy theories have ripped apart American politics, belief in a UFO cover up seems possible. But are UFO’s psyops? Psyops could be an effort to cover-up military activities, fearmonger to drive public chaos, are more likely to gain larger Pentagon budgets.

Belief in God is on the decline.

A 2018 Gallup poll found that U.S. church membership has reached an all-time low of 50%, and one in five Americans does not identify with any religion. Most of the country still expresses belief in God. Exactly how large that majority is, however, depends on how nuanced the response options are. Gallup has asked this question three different ways in recent years, with beliefs varying across them from 87% to 64%. See details below.

Belief in God

Polls often vary depending on how the poll question is asked. Using the stricter survey wording, only 64% of Americans are convinced that God exists – and it is on the decline. Of those who do not believe God exists, just how many would believe that the God described by many religions is, in fact, nefarious. Many non-God believers often question whether God is good. Whether you agree personally or not, the following are beliefs that are emerging as the majority belief by many in America:

  • More people believe in UFOs than God.
  • UFOs are not nefarious but God is.
  • Belief in God makes you a “wacko,” belief in UFOs makes you enlightened.

These beliefs have flipped in the last few decades – from God to UFOs. Neither has been proven under any scientific methods. So why the flip? For one, everyone likes a mystery; it’s cool and God is old and boring – it opens possibilities of the future. Another is that UFOs have not asked us to do anything in our personal lives – at least not yet … 👽 A belief in UFOs, still allows us to do whatever we want to do.

A belief in a God may require us to do something that we won’t want to do – this is the crux of the issue with God.

Is it not strange that many things thought to be settled ideas have flipped 180 degrees in recent times? For example, judging people by skin color, merit-based societies, our gender, free speech, etc …, just to name a few. A mere decade ago the concept of assigning guilt to someone solely based on their skin color was more than taboo- today, CRT is promoted from the government level, read here. Merit and quality were essential measurements for differentiation and biology mattered- today, it is a phobia to address obvious facts, read here. Freedom of speech was the cornerstone of a functioning Republic today, censorship and cancel culture rule, read here.
So is the UFO/God paradigm just one more idea that has flipped?

Are there any Biblical references that would shed any light on this trend? Consider the following:

  • Matthew 24:24: “For false messiahs and false prophets will rise up and perform great signs and wonders so as to deceive, if possible, even God’s chosen ones.”
  • Ephesians 2:2: “Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air [Satan], the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience.”
  • 2 Thessalonians 2:9: “The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with how Satan works. He will use all sorts of displays of power through signs and wonders that serve the lie.”

These references clearly show that mysteries and displays of wonders would occur. This is an often-used as Biblical explanation of UFOs. Perhaps a Psyops from Satan. But this is Biblical gobbledegook, you may say. Right, coming from people that believe in “wacko” UFO theories?

Even UFO believers have their own religions now – see here. But my UFO “wacko” theory is sanction by the government now – and is scientific. Oh … ok, now we are all trusting of government and people in white lab coats with pseudo-science theories.

Please give your thoughts in the comments below on this apparent change in beliefs that UFOs are good and God is bad.

Born down on the farm in America's Midwest, my early life was spent climbing the ladder via a long career in information technology. Starting as a technician, and after earning a degree going to night school, I eventually found a place working at ATT Bell Laboratories as a software engineer.

Later moving into management and then a long stint in a major management consulting firm working with major banking, telecommunications, and retail companies. Working in various states in America, I also spent considerable time living and working in several European countries - currently expat in France. As a side career, I was heavily involved in real estate development and an avid futures trader. This experience can give one a unique view of the world.

The storm clouds of dark change are near. Today America is at a crossroads. Will it maintain its prowess as a national leader in the free modern advancing world, or will it backtrack in the abyss of the envy identity politics of tyrannical socialism, and the loss of individual freedoms. The 2020 election may have decided this. Join the Right Wire Report team and make a stand.

  1. Which god are we talking about here? If the surveyors clearly defined God such as He is in the Bible, the percentage of believers would plummet. The generic god is powerless and there’s no benefit to believing in it.

    • I understand ur point, but since there are about 65% Christians in the US … most people in America, when they think of God, are thinking of an Abrahamic God. But the real point of the article is that both UFOs and God can not be proven under a scientific method.

      UFOs are considered more favorable because we don’t believe they will order us around – perhaps a false assumption. God, gets people to roll their eyes because Gods tend to want something from us – especially the Abrahamic God.

      None of this seeks to get you to believe one way or another – merely commenting on the phycology we humans have on unproven science and our biases when it come to wanting to believe something.

  2. I guess there will always be people out there that are bat crazy! SMH. I am honored to serve God! I not only know there is a God, I Live my life for God! I do not know if there are really UFO and little aliens. I just don’t care. I am surprised by how may people believe in all of the UFO without proof. Just being honest.
